What is a WPA2 password?


A WPA2 password is simply a password, nothing more. The difference between a WPA2 password and a WPA password is the amount of security each have-- WPA2 is more secure than WPA.

I can not obtain an ip address it keeps saying that my wpa key is wrong. How can i sort it ?


Hi there. The WPA password is the one used for your router's protection. If the PS3 says that it the key entered is wrong, this definitely means that you have input the wrong WPA password and maybe tried to put another password.

The best thing to for this is to simply reset your password of your router and make sure to know exactly how you spelled it then simply input the new password into the PS3.

Please rate and comment, thank you.

Trying to apply network key


Hello,
You need your PC connected to the Router via cable, then open Internet Explorer.
In the Address bar type 192.160.100.1 and press enter, for login enter admin and for password enter motorola, now you should see a Motorola window with all the settings.

On the left side select Wireless, a different window will appear.

In the Security Mode field, select WPA and click Apply.
Skip the portion about WEP and go below.

Under WPA CONFIGURATION, for WPA Encryption choose TKIP and for WPA Authentication choose Local (WPA-PSK)

Under Local there is WPA Passphrase, here enter your desired password; try not to forget the password in the future or you have to repeat the steps above, also try to use a combination of letter and numbers.

Click on save changes and you have finish, now you can close explorer.

Please let me know if you need additional help.

regards

What is a security key


WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) is an advancement over WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy). While connecting to a home network, you are often asked to insert a WPA key or a password to which users often ask, "How Do I Find My Computer's WPA Key?" WPA stands for Wi-Fi Protected Access. It is a standard security protocol implemented by Wi-Fi alliance to secure wireless computer networks. WPA standard is advancement over(Wired Equivalent Privacy) Wep is standard that had several security issues. WPA implements most of the IEEE 802.11i standard and provides greater security than WEP.
While connecting to your home network, you are often asked to insert a WPA key. This WPA key is either located in the modem or in the router you are using. In order to find your computer's WPA key, follow the steps given below:
How to find your computer's WPA key Step 1: First of all, you need to launch an internet browser. Press "Windows + R" keys to open the "Run" prompt and type "iexplore" without quotes to open Internet Explorer. You can also type "firefox" to open Mozilla Firefox. On the address bar at the top, type http://192.168.1.1 (Belkin routers use 192.168.2.1 as the default IP) and press "Enter" key.
This address belongs to your wireless modem or wireless router to which you are connected.
Step 2: A window asking for username and password will appear. In the username field, type "admin" without quotes and in the password field, either type "password" without quotes or leave the password field blank. Press "Enter" key to continue.
If password is correct, you will be redirected to the modem/router's "Settings" page, otherwise, you will have to reset the modem/router. Check beneath the modem/router or check the manual for correct password.
To Reset a modem/router, locate a small hole at the back of the modem/router and insert a pin to press the switch inside it. Keep the switch pressed for about 20-30 seconds after which the modem/router will restore the settings to "factory defaults" and reboot itself.
Repeat the step 2, in order to gain access to "Settings" page.
Step 3: On the modem/router's "Settings" page, find "Wireless" option. Click the "Wireless" link to populate the wireless settings. Now, locate and click the "Security" or "Advanced Security" option.
On the security page, you will find "Network Authentication". Different options available under the Network Authentication menu are open, shared, WEP, WPA, WPA2, WPA-PSK, WPA2-PSK, etc. Select either WPA or WPA2, to find your computer's WPA key and insert this key when asked for.
If in step 2, you had reset the modem/router, you will not find any WPA or WPA2 key, and you will have to manually assign one. Select any of the WPA-PSK or any other authentication and assign a key to it. A key can be 8-63 long. For minimal security, you can choose 8 characters key, like "iN\/5R92". For maximum security, choose 63 characters key like, "sJ0esmoU2cBD\m+oMp$nrXj5XPVRTvVA5fpwGSGI\RVz4RdQ7V3y\l$P1NrT9Be".
After you have assigned a key, save/apply the changes and reboot the modem/router.
Note: The procedure shown above is common to most of the modems/routers. If this doesn't apply to you, check your modem/router's manual to find the wireless security option.

Getting a validating identity message that stays there for minutes then I get little or no connectivity. Using WPA-personal with a 12 character password


I think the problem is the little or no connectivity. If you're not getting a good signal the verification process with your WPA and password is timing out before you can get verified. You probably need to turn antenna or get less blockage between you and source before trying.

Wpa key


whoever created the wireless connection would have had to name the wireless router network for your router/computer and put a password in. That will be your WPA key. Ask the relevant person for the password.
